    We have seen this for quite some time, this time it seems to have sunk to a new low and that is using children against "do-nothing adults" on climate change. Who are the one's telling children they have no hope or future because they are all going to die soon due to climate change? Who are the ones organizing these events? If these children actually believe the scripts some of them seem to be reading, what effects do you think it will have on them long term?
    I will not debate or argue, just curious others views

    This seems very contrived and overacted:

    It is fantastic that young people like Greta care about the environment, and no she is not pushed by parens or other adults, this is her own free will to work for the environment. More people like her should be taking more part in the future of this planet :)

    It's a joke. They're indoctrinating the kids. These kids know nothing other than what they've been told.

    I would be embarrassed if children were more scientifically literate than I was.

    Have you spoken with Greta in person? do you know her level of knowledge about pollution and how the world works? I have spoken with her and she is a very bright young person who does know her things within Environmental work.

    Pollution is a big big problem in this world

    My eldest twins age 13 are very concerned about the mess being left for them by this current generation of climate deniers

    My youngest daughter age 9 gets very angry at the ignorance of some people

    You have no idea of the minds of children. I suggest you speak to sone before making bloody stupid comments like that in future

    That's a bit like asking which government was pulled the strings during the 60's flower power movement

    "They" have told the kids the science, that's all. And because they don't yet have cars, or aircons, they don't yet have a vested interest in manufacturing reasons to disbelieve it.

    Why doesn't anyone let Greta come to their homes run their lives? Oh....that's right...she's eleven freakin' years old...(but evidently knows more than anyone else on this subject). I guess this Global Warming/Climate Change scam needed some fresh blood and younger face (where is Al Gore, BTW?).

    Here we go with the anti-science comments from the religious crowd. Many people have been told many times that their religious beliefs were first formed when they were indoctrinated at an early age.

    To counter this argument, the religiously indoctrinated now throw the term "indoctrination" around whenever they are faced with things they disagree with.

    Prove me wrong. Show where and how the average person or child has been indoctrinated since birth regarding AGW.

    Yeah that guy Hiram Nylon*, or whatever he's called, that used to advise Trump, blames it on a conspiracy by the Chinese to undermine the US economy. A decade ago he was claiming it was a conspiracy by the EU to , er, undermine the US economy.


    *I've checked: he's called Myron Ebell.:D

    The "joke" is that these kids are the ones who will have to deal with the consequences of the apathy, willful ignorance, intellectual dishonesty, and scientific illiteracy of previous generations.
    But by all means continue to wallow in your stupid conspiracy theories and worthless superstitions.
